The six-storey towermill at East Ruston was built for John Rudd Turner in 1868 by millwright Thomas Smithdale of St Anne's Foundry, King Street, Norwich. The mill was built of red brick and by the late 1800s was powered by four double shuttered sails, each with 9 bays of 3 shutters; the boat shaped cap had a petticoat and supported an 8-bladed fan and gallery. The stage set around the second floor contained three pairs of stones, two of which were later worked by steam power. In 1946 production ceased and by 1949 the mill was derelict. The machinery was removed in the early 1960s, and by 2000 it had been converted to a holiday let. Presently the mill is a private dwelling house. See also > LinkExternal link and LinkExternal link.
